Why Mark Cuban Says Crypto Is Actually Already Regulated

Following the collapse of crypto exchange FTX, multiple notable crypto investors including billionaire Mark Cuban have openly voiced their stance and opinions on not only FTX but other issues within the crypto industry as a whole.

Crypto Regulations

For the longest time, regulations were a big issue that the crypto industry faced as many felt divided on the stance of regulating cryptocurrencies. Shark tank investor and billionaire Mark Cuban argues however, that cryptocurrencies are not actually unregulated, but that current regulators like the SEC are just not doing enough in acting on these regulations.

In a tweet he made on November 13th, Cuban claims regulators like the SEC have not been pushing their regulations on central exchanges enough, arguing that they apply more effort into their settlement with Kim Kardashian’s crypto issue than on crypto exchanges.

Cuban On FTX’s Fall

The billionaire also made some comments on the collapse of crypto exchange FTX. On November 12th, in a Tweet responding to a video of fellow Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary praising FTX last month, Cuban argues that FTX’s insolvency and bankruptcy doesn’t actually have much to do with crypto at all.

Cuban argues that FTX’s fall is a result of a banking blow-up rather than a crypto blow-up, suggesting that FTX’s fall isn’t much different to other crises that have happened in the traditional financial world.

These blowups have not been crypto blowups, they have been banking blow-ups. Lending to the wrong entity, misvaluations of collateral, arrogant arbs, followed by depositor runs. See Long Term Capital, Savings and Loan and Sub-Prime blowups,” He wrote.
